Powell Peralta Flight Decks are 25% thinner than a normal board. That's as thin as your phone! Thanks to carbon fibre layers they are 200% stronger and virtually unbreakable. You can drive over them with a truck and they won't snap. Not convinced yet? They also have a 10% higher rebound for better pop and a 10x longer lasting pop. Tail and nose will wear, but they will last you at least twice as long as a normal board. This 8,75" is slightly wider than the 8,5", but it also has a considerbly longer wheelbase. Perfect if your looking for a stable and steady board, but rotation tricks will need more effort.
